Re-activation after hardware upgrade
I have been running Vista Premium since 31st January 2007. But on 14th April
2007
I had to change my Motherboard due to a non-repairable fault.
Since changing the motherboard I keep getting asked to re-activate my system
when I boot up. I've tried to re-activate vista but It won't have it as it
sayes it has all ready been activated. I only have 2 days left to re-activate
before it shuts the system down.
What do I have to do.

Re: Re-activation after hardware upgrade
When it asks about how do you want to activate, choose telephone activation
and get the telephone number. Explain that you had to replace the MOBO
because it was defective (if it is OEM) if the automated activation doesn't
work.
